You ever have those days where you're just finding odd items.  Well I had almost forgot about this and just ran across it on the computer.  I don't think I ever got around to posting it so here it is.  I had been hunting a bit of an odd area.  Signals were sounding strange tones/numbers were off and so on.  I had just pulled a 1903 Indian cent from about 2" deep that was in pretty bad shape at least if memory serves right it was a 1903 when I hit an odd signal about 6.5" deep and got this U.C.C.P.C. token.  Funny how some things you can remember like it was yesterday. 

The token was roughly about the size of a US quarter if I  recall.  Not sure now as it is stashed in my token collection somewhere at the moment.  I believe it was what was known as an "incuse" strike and the design was excat on both sides saying "WORTH 10CENTS U.C.C.P.C."  Token seemed to be made of a quite thin aluminum or tin.  I apologize for the quality of the picture maybe iI can find a better one on the computer yet...it was a little harder to get a clear picture of...very shiny so dealing with glare at times.  This token had been recovered somewhere around October of 09 but  thought I would still go ahead and share it since it did seem to be a rather odd token find that I still know very little about.

Thanks for viewing.

Stringfrenzy now that's pretty cool i have only seen one other of those and that been a while back.

(Copied from another site just to provide some insight for those who would like to know)
Possibly made by the Leyse Co. (of Kewaunee, Wisc). The aluminum planchet is very thin and has been compared to the foil used to wrap individual sticks of chewing gum. The style of manufacture has also been called ?Bracteat? after a medieval style of manufacturing coins where one side has raised letters, and the other side is incuse. Two distrubtors of Double Cola, a soft drink made in Wisconsin and Michigan, used similar tokens. This token was at one time a common sight in the junk boxes of Wisconsin coin dealers. ******One seller thought this was the Union Carbide Consumer Products Corporation.

Good information Karl.  Thanks for sharing it with us.  I've known about the possible tie to the Union Carbide Co.  There was also other very useful information that I was able to gather from your post as well.  I gotta say when they say thin aluminum they aren't kidding either.  When I first dug it I remember thinking that it was a flattened piece of foil or even flat piece of pop can until I noticed the markings on it.  The markings caught my eye and that's when I realized that it was some form of token.  Thanks again for the input.  Much appreciated.

Hello. I found a uccpc 10 cent script in Canton Michigan.  If anyone has any further history on this item it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
